Hello menna2017,

Our pocasts are audio-only so there is no video on this page. Podcasts are generally audio-only; when there is a video we call it either a 'video podcast' or a 'vodcast'.

Hi everyone. I'm from Vietnam. In my country, people are keen on having pets. Well, cats and dogs are the most common animals that they keep. Honestly, pets live in freedom as people do. As I say, they can go everywhere they want without their owner observation.

Hi,I'm from vietnam too. Nice comment Thao.

Hello everyone.
The best pets are the ones that you rescue from the street.

If you really love animals you should forbid the slaughterhouses!
That is my opinion.

Thank's Sir, from where I can check the dictionary

Hello Hidayatullah,
